You could take a look at the oggenc code if you want - it does this,
but configurably (with defaults for unix and win32 different), you can
give replacements, or choose to have characters simply deleted.
If your license is compatible, go ahead and use the code.

Multiple lines are in the spec, and should definately be allowed - but
be warned that tools such as vorbiscomment will not deal appropriately with
them due to limitations in the interface (i.e. it just has input/output as
plain text, with comments seperated by newlines).
